Very busy at night. Well maintained.

A busy cross section of several main streets. Well maintained with clean streets. However may be too noisy due to the availability of pubs and cafes,

Maybe not as romantic as fifteen years ago, when I visited this place first time, it is now a scenic vivid place at night, maybe it was a bit loud for me, for going out at night to bars, discos, and other night activities, even a late dinner.

Sifangjie is bustling with people but this is also the least likeable place to me in Ancient Town as it became too commercialized in this square junction. Touted by some kids selling flowers and noisy bars and pubs selling beers are ridiculous prices.

Sifang Street is a standard and interesting feature of an old town. This square carries with it valuable culture, customs, trade and history. It is surrounded by shops selling local speciality products and some local residents selling agriculture products and delicacies. The centre of the square has a design with four bats for purpose of good luck. This place is... More

Went here near the spring festival holiday on the late january 2015. It was one of the most lively and crowded spot in lijiang old town. There was a group dance with local people which was fun to watch. If u want to join the group dance, be aware that it's not free, you will be asked for some money... More

This place is basically the centre of Dayan Old Town and there will be some men there with majestic birds which look well taken care of there. For 10yuan, you can take as many photos as you like with the bird on your arm. Not to worry, they're tame. Afterwards, they will offer to print out the photo for you... More

too crowded and too narrow. though it is crowded by visitrts, I am doubting any one wash the floor . There is a drain which stinks. There are many shops selling quite similar goods & souvenirs as expected.

A square with all the happenings. Busy, crowded, noisy with restaurants and bars fronting it. A meeting place of sorts and a mingling ground. Flavours and smells abound. Everything from tau foo to bugs and shrimps can be found grilled or stir fried on the woks. Dancers from the bars entice patrons with their performance. A great place to unwind!
